    I am giving my Birds Aureomycin right now and I heard that you shouldn't eat the eggs while they are on this. I know I heard it from someone, but I looked at the bag and it only says not to give to Turkeys giving eggs. Does anyone know if you can still eat the eggs while on the medicine?

    Quote:If that is the type you add to their feed, the withdrawal for the meat is 7 days. If the meat is good to eat after 7 days so are the eggs.
    If it's the powdered type aureomycin to be mixed in water, the egg withdrawal is 5 days. ( Personally I'd wait 7 days to be safe.)
